Can't advance to next podcast / Podcasts automatically repeat

[ Edited ]

My Clip Sport arrived today and I have to say I'm incredibly disappointed.

 

The problem is that I can only skip backwards/forwards between episodes of the same podcast. If I've reached the end of the episodes then it just starts playing the first episode of that podcast again. I want the skip button to take me to the first episode of the next podcast.

 

I mostly listen to podcasts when I'm running and don't want to look at the screen - I just want to be able to jump backwards and forwards using the buttons. It doesn't look like I can do this which makes this player completely useless for me.

 

Am I missing something?

 

p.s. On closer investigation this also seems to happen with music albums... when it finishes playing one album it won't automatically advance to the next, and the skip button won't advance it either. Surely this can't be right?

The Clip Sport (and Clip Jam) do not have a "Play All" feature that allows "sequential" play of all Music or Audiobooks or Podcasts.

      You could try Folder Mode to play all Podcasts in one folder. The player will likely play these files in chronological order they were added to the player.  To resolve the file sorting limitation using FOLDER mode, try using this app (for Win PC)

      "Fat Sorter 1.0.4.0  from HolosTec"

Re: Can't advance to next podcast / Podcasts automatically repeat

Thanks for the info. I figured out the thing with folder mode but unfortunately it won't save my place in the podcasts if I use that so it's not much use.

 

The other thing I found was that I can edit the mp3 files for the podcasts and clear the album field, then they all all appear in the "unknown album" podcast. This is clumsy and introduces an extra step that I don't want to have to do.

 

At this stage I will be returning the Clip Sport as it is unfit for the purpose I purchased it for. Do any of the other SanDisk clip players handle sequential play across albums?
